This project is going to be the pivot of a transformed neighborhood, bloomberg wants a billionares belt of the super rich and NYC will get it.

It looks like the first window is now visible on the left side of the 56th St camera. I can't quite tell.

No offense at all. I always was an advocate of people using the height measurement they believe to be the right one

As to the Chrysler, for me it doesn't matter that the spire is hollow. It is very thin and has no occupied floor in itself so I don't count it towards roof height

I just looked at the webcam and thought I saw it too, So impressive after seeing the scale of the opening with Mr. Macklowe standing in it.

To be honest, I have no problem with them advertising this tower as a 100 storey building. If Trump and Co. can do it, why not Macklowe? There are lot of buildings out there which have a lower roof height but more floors.

-----------

I just love how they compare 432 PA to the other towers, by roof height. Especially at the end, where 1WTC is listed as 1368'.

Some pics I pulled off from the vid: http://www.wallpaper.com/architectur...-new-york/6537

Awesome video indeed, thanks for posting

Btw, I updated my diagram with this current jump, so the building is currently 85 meters or 279 feet tall

Roof height used below

^ Nice.

With the current speed and no massive delays, this one could be already a supertall by the end of the year.
